Windows 8 upgrade

Post by sparks on Sat Apr 15, 2017 9:38 am

Just downloaded a new Samsung upgrade prog for WIN7. It's offering me a WIN 8 upgrade. Is it worth it, problematic, I'm fine with WIN7

No, it wastes your time to upgrade to Win8.
Win8 is not very good and got complaints from users that is why MS now encourages people to use Win 10 instead.
A lot of people choose to stay put with Win7.
Some install a small sw to prevent MS nagging to upgrade to Win 10 for free.
Cheers.

Microsoft just did a big fat upgrade to my existing Windows 10 and tried to switch my browser from Firefox to Microsoft Edge. I switched it back to Firefox. Then, about an hour later, I was browsing the news and whoops, I'ts Edge again. Turned it off, went back in and Firefox was back on. Beware of Microsofties! They are SNEAKY.

Windows 10 is much better than windows 8, but needs more horsepower.
Stay with 7 is my recommendation. Beer Beer
